May a commercial motor vehicle be penalized for failing to comply with a posted route restriction, such as a sign along a roadway?

Yes. A driver may be cited for failing to operate a commercial motor vehicle in accordance with the laws, ordinances, and regulations of the jurisdiction in which it is being operated as required under 49 CFR 392.2. Further, a conviction of failing to obey a traffic control device would be counted against a motor carrier’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability score.
